You know he did come from her
He had lipstick on his shirt
I know he must hurt you
When you are smelling the perfume
You keep tell me is gonna work
When he is out there doing dirt
Always giving your love away
And you shouldn't be second place
On top of the world
He doesn't have a clue
He is gotta be... he is got you
And if I was you I'll give you everything
I'll make you shine baby
Why are you living in a shadow
And you are locked up
Shadow shadow
Why are you living in the shadow

You are living in the shadow
When you don't have to
Why are you living in the shadow
You know he did come from her
He had lipstick on his shirt
I know he must hurt you
When you are smelling the perfume
You keep tell me is gonna work
When he is out there doing dirt
Always giving your love away
And you shouldn't be second place
On top of the world
He doesn't have a clue
He is gotta everything
He is got you
And if I was you I'll give you everything
I'll make you shine baby
Why are you living in a shadow
And you are locked up
Shadow shadow
Why are you living in the shadow
When you don't have to
Why are you living in the shadow
